Growth Groups

Our Ministry Process is simple… Worship, Grow, Serve. Three simple words that help us to draw near to Christ and develop us into disciples. Worship is a time for us to corporately come together to investigate God, sing praises, read scripture, and learn from our pastor Scott. Grow is a time to come together in small groups to learn, discuss, and apply scripture to our daily lives while caring for others in our groups. Serve is a time for us to pour into the church and community through different avenues of service.


Our expectation is that all of our members are engaged in the Ministry Process at NRC, and all of our programming is designed to help you do that. All of our programming falls into 4 major times throughout the week: Sunday at 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m., Wednesdays at 6 p.m. and alternative times throughout the week. Worship is only available on Sundays. Grow and Serve are available at all major programming times.  


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask Nate Young or any of our church staff.
